This is the exhaustive reference tome of "Monty Python's Flying Circus," the seminally surreal sketch series that ran on the BBC from 1969-1974. At 800 pages, this book provides not only every line of every madcap script, but also annotations, essays, cast notes, and historical asides that reveal the cultural and topical references in the skits. Using 2,000 photos and a playful page design, this book divulges details that will have true Python fans nudge-nudging each other with glee, from rejected series titles ("Owl Stretching Time?") to essays on comedic forebears such as British radio's "The Goon Show." Proving that no detail is too ridiculous for a Python devotee, the pages themselves deliver a flipbook performance by the Minister of Silly Walks. 9 1/2" H x 8" W. (6 lbs.)
